Maiden Scotland

Scream for Me Dumfries!!

Maiden Scotland are one of the best and most established tributes to rock legends Iron Maiden. Formed in 2003, Maiden Scotland have been touring all over the UK and Ireland ever since. Featuring 5 experienced musicians, the band is fronted by vocal powerhouse Martin Jakubski. Martin has the exceptional power and range needed to accurately deliver the air raid siren vocals of Bruce Dickinson. Martin's singing credentials were proven when he was chosen by original Marillion guitar Steve Rothery to sing in his solo band. On the lead twin guitar are the brothers grimm, Mark and Stuart Mitchell, both have performed on tour with original Iron Maiden singer Paul Dianno and know exactly how a Maiden tribute should sound! Completing the line up on bass is the Glasgow legend that is Allen Bell as wee 'arry! On drums we have the amazing Mark Bray who also features in top Rush tribute Moving Pictures, both top class musicians.

Maiden Scotland cover all era of Iron Maiden. Although the focus is mainly on the classic Eighties era. You will hear all the classic hits like Run to the Hills, Wasted Years and Can I Play with Madness but also epic album tracks like Fear of the Dark and Phantom of the Opera. Maiden Scotland are not a cabaret tribute band and do not wear wigs, preferring to focus on putting on a full blown rock gig with 110% commitment. A ferocious live band in their own right, Maiden Scotland's gonna get ya!
